Not an Imp, but it's still a really good car

All of that wing attached to bodywork instead of chassis? I know they are the experts but I wouldn't.
The other thing, I have looked several times and wonder whether it was the rear suspension failure causing the bodywork to come adrift. The suspension was hanging off before he hit anything, at least from the clips I have seen.

Hi Roy,

I wondered if the suspension had something to do with it, especially as he'd run that wheel on the grass when he'd got a bit out of shape early in the run.

The other thing I thought odd was the marshal pointing at the small fire but nobody put it out, especially with all the straw bales pretty close to the car.

You wouldn't want that sort of failure on Pikes Peak. He would have more a heart thumping in his chest.
